I love this thread. The first thing I would upgrade when I got a new bike would be the cranks. Usually Cooks or Grafton. Always wanted Bullseye though.

Those WRA's are nice, very similar to Roox Spinning Max's from about 10 years ago.

460g as you see them, so don't know how that compares to RooX's?

They are having very similar design, but WRA (Wrangler Racing Austria) are drilled (they're empty inside - look for photo below ) - RooX wasn't if I remember well About RooX weight - You could ask Jojopunx - he was having them and weight them for sure!

And following the topic - nice TNT cranks from me :)

Indeed, the cranks are drilled in the WRA and ALWAYS arms were heavier than RooX.
WRA' crank material is brittle and often cracked.
were also "STEINBACH STONE CRANK" and some of them were drilled, and some were full of arms.
Here are a few of them on the scales in different sizes:

Some very nice cranks here 8)

I picked these silver/red Cro-magnon cranks up a little while back.....

Never seen or heard of them before. I'm guessing a short-lived company?

I think they were made in 1997, and yes, they were short lived.

as I know many brands have this cranks in offer in lot of versions - all of them had same shape of arms, difference was CNC finish

fex I'm having a set with clean arms (oryginally signed by Hot Really)

and some others in his gallery

CPI started showing those cranks at the Taipei show in 1993 and anybody that wanted to buy them could get the main shape altered and logo'd anyway they wanted to their own spec. The samples they had in their booth had a very heavy CNC mill finish. Never really thought it was a good crank or design and from what I remember they had a wide q-factor.
